I really want to get the Subcompact version as it will fit my hand better than all others, but now I am hesitant. I have 4 Gen4 Glock 30's and they have been bulletproof. The only thing I hate about the G30 is the grip is too big and I had to get an overwatch precision flat face trigger so my small hands could have probably placement. Darn mod costs $135 dollars!


I have the compact and It's been flawless. I got the small grip and even it is a bit too big for my hand but it's manageable. I ordered the x grip mag extension and put it on a 15 round compact mag and went to the gun shop and put it in a small sub compact frame and it fits my hand perfectly. I'm gonna use my compact slide on the small sub grip frame. It's a great fit using the x grip mag extension. Maybe you should try that option? Unless you just hate the longer slide but I like it that way. Top gun supply has a small sub frame for 41 bucks shipped.

If they do, then try a higher grain load and see if you have the same FTE problem. Could just be a tight recoil spring that needs some good ammo run through it for a couple hundred rounds.
I received similar advice when experiencing almost the same issue with my 229. Switched to full SAAMI spec 9 mm ammo for the next 100 or so rounds and the issue went away. I think the recoil spring needed a bit of working in and the lower powered ammo was simply not enough to get the job done.

Not sure if you got this resolved yet but the FTE issue is a common one with the 320. Not that this issue is common but among those who have problems: FTE is the main one. I simply called Sig about it, got a packing label sent to me, they replaced the extractor, cleaned it, shot 250 rounds through it, detail cleaned it then sent it back free of charge.

Definitely hit up Sig!

I've got a 9mm P320 compact I bought in November 2015. First time out I tried to shoot 124gr Blazer Brass, and had multiple FTE. So I changed to Lawman 115 and had no problems. I then tried Winchester white box, and had FTE in every mag. After putting at least 3000 rounds through it, I determined that Perfecta, Lawman, and American Eagle were good to go. Also Gold Dot and HST functioned flawlessly. But I was irritated that Winchester didn't work, since I had about 1000 rounds of it. So I called Sig and told them I heard there was an improved extractor spring pin available, and that I was having FTE with Winchester range ammo. He checked my serial# and said I had the old version spring pin. Since I was having problems, he sent the new part free of charge. Since installing the new spring pin I've shot 300-400 rounds of white box without any failures.

I did this immediately after the first range trip, still happens.

Edit: I have since polished things a bit and it has improved.

First time shooting my p320c I had a few different boxes of ammo. Tried Fiocchi first and had really bad FTE rate. Moved to Sellier & Bellot which has a higher muzzle energy, worked flawlessly. Went back to Fiocchi, worked flawlessly. Went through Federal Aluminum, worked flawlessly. So it may have just been stiff springs requiring slightly hotter rounds the first go around.

I know this is an old thread, but as a long-term P320 owner, I thought I'd add my 2 cents about my experiences. I bought one of the earlier, and apparently better, P320 Compact 9mm versions in Sept., 2014. I put 4336 rounds through it before I converted it to a .357 SIG using a Caliber X-Change Kit. In all those 9mm rounds, I had only two (2) FTEs, both 115g. Since converting it late in 2016, I've shot 1100 rounds of .357 SIG, with only a single (1) failure to feed, which was likely caused by a poor job of magazine loading on my part.

Maybe I got lucky, but my P320 has been stunningly reliable for nearly 5500 rounds. Besides lucking into getting a particularly good example, I also attribute my P320's reliability to thoroughly cleaning and lubing it after every use, and to my use of only high-quality name-brand ammo, mostly Lawman 124 and Win NATO. (Yes, I'm an ammo snob, and proud of it, because it works for me.) Every SD round I've tried has fired perfectly, and I've shot hundreds of them, trying to find the one my P320 shoots the most accurately. It turns out it doesn't prefer one particular SD round over the others, so I loaded it with Gold Dot 124g +P when it was a 9mm, and now with Gold Dot 125g in .357 SIG.

I'm sure there are thousands of P320 owners out there who have had similar positive experiences. Few of them will write in to say, "Hey, this P320 is a great gun!" Most of those who are motivated to write in about their guns are those who have had problems. I know because I am one of them. If you mosey on over to the Smith and Wesson Forum, you can find a long thread where I rant about my problematic Shield 9mm. But you will not find a long thread where I praise my near-perfect S&W M&P 40 Compact. Its mere goodness did not motivate me to write in to talk about it. If the same is true for P320 owners, I think we can assume most of them are highly satisfied. Finally, the S&W Forum actually gets many positive comments about the P320, and not just from me!

Hey this P320 is a great gun Mine is a 01/17 build, not a compact though full size.

I'd be happy to write it every day...I just think it's kind of assumed that it's a great gun and the failures are the exceptions.

I have about 900 rounds through it (only had it 8 days) using walmart cheap stuff...400 federal aluminum casing, 250 remington umc and 250 WWB. no FTF or FTE twice slide didn't lock open on last shot, but could be a thumb in the way.

I had a similar experience with my Carry 9 MM (purchased in Feb 2015). Had some FTE issues for the first few hundred rounds. Switched to 124 grain and have gone over 800 rounds with no issues. I think there must be a break-in period with these guns. I've read that the compact/carry recoil spring is the same for 9MM/40/357 Sig. If true, then perhaps the spring is a little stiffer to handle the more powerful calibers than it would be if it were only for a 9MM, in which case I can understand why there may be a break-in period.

I have a P320c 9mm and .40s&w conversion kit. I have yet to have a malfunction. As soon as I get the slide milled or buy a 320c RX, it will be one of my carry guns. I really like the p320c and have confidence in it to do its job as well as being safe! I believe that some of the issues that some people complain about, are operator induced. Some people maybe new to striker fired guns or possibly new to shooting. Maybe, even received poor training.
While it is true, there are equipment malfunctions, but again, I believe a lot of it is the person.

I have rarely bought a gun, cleaned it, and then shoot it. I buy it, inspect it, shoot it, then clean it.
Not trying to insult anyone or start an argument. Just my opinion after reading these posts.
Good luck to all. And for heaven sakes, learn and apply the 4 safety rules. Be safe.

I have a 2015 production carry that I converted to a compact early on and it has well over 7k though it without a single failure of any kind. I have a newer 2017 build that has about 1100 through it so far and 100% as well.

I have P320c that was built July 2016. When I first got it I had 2-3 FTE the first 5 times out (50-100 rounds each time). I was new to handguns so I'm sure some of it was me. Based on advice I got here that the spring was probaly tight, I shot 200 rounds of 124g & left the slide locked back while in the safe for a few days. Between doing that and improving my own skills it's been fine ever since. Now it doesn't matter what ammo I use. Approaching 4000 rounds.
